    Electric Vehicle Charging Stations in multi-unit buildings

    I always wonder why condo boards are so bizarre, as mine is too. Recently, mine had the front entry panel disconnected from the elevators' floor access systems, so we now need to go downstairs to let guests up to our units. Personally I would be embarrassed to even propose the $50,000 EV wiring...

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    Is there currently a summary available of current speed enhancement projects on the GO network?

    Toronto | 485 Wellington Street West | 51m | 14s | Lifetime | Wallman Architects

    I looked inside the building last night, and saw several cooler fridges and freezers (like one would see in a supermarket/convenience store), half-stocked shelves of pantry items, what looked like cans of kombucha, some packages of linguine, and also 2 desks with computer monitors, all in the...

    Montréal Transit Developments

    In addition to what nfitz said, I believe that for TTC, the 24 hour delay until your Presto card registered added funds rarely ever took that long. Prior to the instant updates, Subway turnstiles seemed to be ready in about 1 hour after an online reload, and buses/streetcars would be updated...

    Ottawa Transit Developments

    It's sad that the tweet makes it sound like a "win" that a con government is not cancelling a transit project.

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    Wow. We really should standardize railways to km/h already. If thousands of cross-border truckers can handle it, trains can as well.

    I would've voted for the guy who does the Chicago L announcements. I chose voice B in any case.

    VIA Rail

    I'm looking forward to electrification for that satisfying acceleration. It's also always bothered me that Canada now has no mainline electrification, and on the corridor the source is all hydro and nuclear, whereas Australia has tons of mainline electrification despite primarily powering their...

    TTC: Streetcar Network

    Unfortunately, it was not ahead of schedule. I have seen this stopping at intersections behaviour worsening over the past few years, all part of the supposed safety rules I assume.

    TTC: Streetcar Network

    I recently began riding the streetcar again, and was sort of surprised how much it felt like it did, pre-pandemic. It sucked. At a green light, it would accelerate for a moment, then stop for no apparent reason, before slowly lumbering through an intersection with no turns/switches, and not even...

    General cycling issues (Is Toronto bike friendly?)

    There are always these dumb pickup truck drivers who park on the sidewalk around me (King West) as their default parking method. That, or thy park 2 wheels on the sidewalk, 2 on the bike lane.

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    Thanks! I'm still imagining ML will still be saying "detailed design taking place" in 2046 😒

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    I'm out of the loop - is the Caledonia GO station actually being built now, or is it on the "back-burner" (i.e. it will never, ever be built)?

    Montréal Transit Developments

    I would. I use the V-H and SJ lines quite a bit, and unless they're being upgraded to REM, what would be the sense in shutting them down?

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    When will a new completion date actually be set? Or is it just "idk, whenever" at this point?
